Ice to see you, trainers
Trainers, get ready for a seriously snowy Catch Mastery event featuring Ice-type Pokémon, like Snorunt and Bergmite! The Catch Mastery: Ice event kicks off Saturday, December 9, 2023 and runs from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. local time.
The following Pokémon will appear more frequently in the wild.
You’ll have an increased chance of encountering Shiny Snorunt, Shiny Cryogonal, and Shiny Bergmite, and you’ll also get 2× XP for successfully catching Pokémon with Nice Throws, Great Throws, and Excellent Throws.
Tasks focused on your Poké Ball–throwing accuracy will be available! The following Pokémon will be available to encounter when you complete Field Research tasks.
Timed Research focused on catching Ice-type Pokémon will be available throughout the event! Complete 10 sets of research tasks to encounter 40 Cryogonal in total! You’ll have an increased chance of encountering Shiny Cryogonal.
Trainers will be able to purchase additional Timed Research for US$2.00 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency) that is identical to the free Timed Research and will award 40 additional Cryogonal encounters.
